Blackboard Scribe III

I guess you can tell that I’m getting really into this particular SoulPancake task…

In this installment I take scribe-spiration from fellow PR diva and KarmaWaffle fan, Jenn Hill (@jenniferdhill).

On my previous post Jenn commented with a few of her favorite inspirational quotes. I choose one by John F. Kennedy (mostly because, as expressed in my Soul Scribble, I love a man with a clean hair cut, and I religiously follow Jackie O’s theory that when it comes to eye-wear, bigger is better).

“One person can make a difference,
and everyone should try”

Thank you Jenn for your help, I appreciate your enthusiasm in my blog and your affinity for sexy presidents.

And I know what most of you are probably thinking…I look pretty B.A. in my leather jacket, and for that I say thanks, I think so too.

All other silent waffle-enthusiasts, please send me your inspirational quotes/life mottos! The interest thus far has been really great, and you know I’ll follow through!

Live A Little #21: Bring Your Neighbor A Cup Of Coffee

The life of a college student rarely involves early morning walks (unless they are that of shame), but on one brisk April morning I took a hot cup-o-joe to my neighbor Julia.

I have recorded my journey for your viewing pleasure…

1) I do not walk that quickly, I had to speed up the footage to keep you on your edge of your seat.

2) My nail color is Lapis of Luxury by Essie.

3) Julia hates coffee.

There’s ALWAYS Time To Build A Fort…

I must first apologize to those whom only clicked on this post  in hopes of seeing photos of some super cool fort I made. Sorry guys, I’ve been sick the past week or so and have only erected unimpressive, sad, sneezy sheet-forts in my bed (Delirious on Dayquil, party of one?).

I thought it was about time I got some waffle-enthusiasts in on the blogging fun.

Here I have featured some anonymous mini-guest-bloggers whom I have asked to answer the SoulPancake query on pg.180…

List Five Things You Can Learn From a Five Year Old:

My favorites in the bunch?

“mac and cheese is delicious”

“A good fake cry can sometimes be quite useful”

“If you love someone, TELL THEM”

“How to get rid of cooties

“Don’t sweat the small stuff”

“The value of naptime

“If you want to sing out, sing out

What can YOU learn from a 5 year old?

Comment with your answers!


This exercise made me think of an article
I read head a few months back about what
children think about LOVE. Check it out,
its a guaranteed smile.

Whiteboard Scribe II

The more I am in the library, the more empty boards I find to vandalize scribe on.

Today’s inspiration came from a tweet from fellow Marist student Luke Shane (@LShane262).

“If you can’t excel with talent,

triumph with effort”

Thanks Luke!

To see other random acts of scribe-spiration see here, here, & here.

Thanks for the inspiration, scribe on everybody.

Whiteboard (?) Scribe

Today is a ‘retreat day’ at school, which although I have no idea it’s purpose, I am grateful for my canceled classes.

I found this to be a perfect opportunity to be a blackboard scribe yet again, but alas, there are only whiteboards in the library (where I am camping out for the day). I can work with that.

On my original Blackboard Scribe post, a friend of mine (@lynniepants) suggested the following quote…

PEACE. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart” – unknown

Thanks Lynn for the scribe-spiration and breaking into an empty classroom with me.

This Little Piggy…

What would you literally chop off your pinky toe for? I found myself stumped by this question. As days passed it would jump in and out of consciousness,  I would encounter things I desired with a new perspective, asking myself daily,“would I lose a toe for that?”

Would You Be Fine With Nine?

(Courtesy of SoulPancake pg.98)

I admit my initial thoughts were pretty shallow. I confessed to my housemates that I’d cut off my pinky toe to have Giselle Bundchen‘s life. You know, be an international supermodel, the wife of Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady, a new mother, and having a enough money to do what I want when I want, basically a flawless life by my standards.

This pipedream was foiled when one of my roommates informed me that you need BOTH outer toes to walk properly and balance yourself, so even if I was Giselle 2.0, I’d be useless on a runway with only nine toes, losing my fame, fortune, and football stud.

Moving on…

1. Balenciaga Suede City Bag in Military Green

I love fashion blogs, the general idea of adoring beautiful things (although I’ll never be able to afford them) and others expression of personal style entertains me. I came across this beautiful Balenciaga bag in my favorite color posted on The Blonde Salad. I love everything about this bag; I love that I could fit everything I own in it, I love that it matches my eyes, I love that becuase it is suede I can’t wear it in the rain, while drinking, or near a pool, and I love that it costs 774 Dunkin Donuts medium iced coffees.

Speaking of iced coffee…

2. Unlimited Dunkin’ Donuts

Some would say I have a coffee problem. The word addiction may be too harsh, I like to think of it as a strong, life-altering appreciation. For more details see Trivial Pursuits.

3. A Real Proposal from Ryan Reynolds

Once my Giselle dream was shattered I had to reevaluate my fantasy future husband. I would give my pinky toe for a real proposal from Ryan Reynolds. Have you seen The Proposal? I’d go 9 toe for that (on one knee, with a BIG Tiffany’s princess-cut diamond ring). He is handsome, hilarious, sweet, successful, and just a hollywood dream boat. Hubba hubba.

Sooooo after working on this post for about a month I could only come up with 3 things! At first I thought I failed, but I think this just shows that I’m pretty content, and I’m cool with that.

Try to come up with 5 things that you’d sacrifice a toe for!

PLEASE comment below, I’m looking forward to reading them =)

Live A Little #33: Buy and Play a Harmonica

When you see someone at a house party with a harmonica, one would usually think, “who invited this guy?”

On the contrary, I  made a bee line to Mr.Harmonica, snatched it, yelled “KarmaWaffles!” (in my head), and ran off in search of a quiet room.

Who looks crazy now? Yours truly.

Ta-Dah! Just call me Mrs. Harmonica.

So I did not purchase said harmonica, but will always have this video to remind me of my musical talent.

Special thanks to Sara for taking a time out from partying to take this video (and not looking at me like a crazy person when I asked her to).
